I'm not going to be TTC for awhile, but this place saved my life so I'd like to come back now.  Found out yesterday that our LO's heart had stopped two weeks ago.  I would have been 11 weeks today.  My doc said I had to have another D&C because it had been so long.  I guess I should give a back story since I see a lot of new names.  I had my first loss in November of 2010 when I first found this board.  We lucked out and I then had my son last year on Jan 27.  I had a natural miscarriage this past july.  This is now my third miscarriage.  I was on progesterone even though he never checked any levels, but that obviously didnt help.  My ob said to use the progesterone next time because it worked.  I got irritated and said I still have a dead baby so it didn't work.  That I wanted more testing.  He said he would do a panel to look for clotting disorders.  That's in two weeks.  Should I ask for anything else?  Would you ask to be referred to a specialist? 

Physically I'm having a lot of discomfort.  Not cramping.  More a stabbing feeling around my scar.  Emotionally, I'm just going through the motions.  Thank God I have Ativan on hand....

Mindi I'm so sorry you're going through this again. I hope you heal quickly and can get back to TTC if you're ready.

I remember you and your struggles on this board and then your joy (and my own envy).  So sorry to see you back here again.  A loss at 11 weeks is pretty disappointing.  You start to think you might have a baby.  How old are you?  I hope you feel better soon.  I think winter is a blah sort of time to be grieving, at least here in the cold northeast, so try to do something nice for yourself as a pick me up.
